Puget Sound Energy and Northwest Harvest will hold a dedication celebration on Tuesday, June 5, for the newly installed solar panels that are generating electricity for the facility.

Northwest Harvest, the only statewide non-profit distributor serving 370-plus food banks, meal programs and high-need schools, will be able to reduce their operating budget by over $5,000 per year with the installation of its solar panels.

In addition, this 75-kilowatt project will result in approximately $34,000 in state incentives over 8 years. This would be a cumulative savings of $145,000 over the next 15 years.

PSE has announced its commitment to reduce its carbon footprint 50 percent by 2040, and these solar projects are another step it’s taking with the community to preserve and protect the environment for future generations.
